Our Story

Meet The Family

From Our Family to Yours– Welcome to Jacks Beachfront!

Upon visiting the shores of Commanda Lake in 2018 with my wife Kaitlin for the first time, we felt the beginning of something remarkable. The pristine waters, the untouched natural beauty of the boreal forest, and the jagged rock of the Canadian Shield breaking through the ground inspired us to become stewards of this serene nature. With great pride and gratitude, we invite you to create wonderful family memories at The Luksa Collective: picking raspberries come springtime, summer-time visits from gentle wildlife, campfire stories on crisp autumn evenings, and treasured holiday celebrations.

In bonding with our family and nature here at Jacks Beachfront Retreat, we discovered our passion for sharing this experience with others. We soon learned how fulfilling it is to hear the wonderful stories of families coming together after years separate, children getting in touch with nature in a way they have never had before, couples making lifelong commitments to each other and friends coming together to celebrate milestones. We are so proud to make Restoule and Jacks Beachfront Retreat a home for your memories. Now it’s your turn– we invite you, your family, and your friends to make some lifelong memories here as well.

The Luksa Collective


In 2021, Jacks Beachfront Retreat began as a personal cottage for families to enjoy the great Canadian outdoors and get away from the busy city. Through the years, we’ve recognized just how rewarding the community of Restoule is. With serenity and adventure found in abundance in Restoule, we dreamed of a collection of vacation cottages so that other families could enjoy this slice of paradise we stumbled on. In connecting other families with this opportunity, we discovered the pleasure of sharing the natural bounty and close-knit community here at Jacks Beachfront Retreat. It’s the joy of providing people with an incredible experience that makes our efforts worthwhile. Our business is our love for and pride in Restoule and that is a true blessing.

We believe that the world is welcome to Restoule! From summer to winter and from sandy beaches to snowy banks, there is beauty and fun to be found at the lake and the surrounding Almaguin Highlands. Taking away the stress of short-term rentals for you, our guest creates a positive experience for everyone involved. By simplifying the entire process through our strong communication and attention to detail, we make it easier to enjoy your visit at Jacks Beachfront Retreat.
